Legendary Actor and Film-Maker Sammo Hung is back with a bang, teaming up with Kickboxer Actor Dennis Chan to form a new film company “Sammo Hung films“. This is very exciting news with many Projects already being planned such as To Catch a Killer, Back to School, Operation: Ground Zero, Silk Road, I-Ching Warriors, The Detrimental Protectors and the big one The Return of Lucky Stars.
The Return of Lucky Stars will bring together the old “Lucky Stars Gang”, reuniting Sammo Hung with Richard Ng, Eric Tsang and John Sham. I’m a very big fan of the Lucky Star Movies from the hard hitting Wheels On Meals to the Hilarious Winners And Sinners, i am sure The Return of Lucky Stars will be another hit for the gang. I am more confident now, we could get the Three Dragons back together for one last time, Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao. »
Hot off the success of last year’s box office record-setting smash The Mermaid, Stephen Chow brought us a sequel this Lunar New Year to his 2013 film Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. While it set an opening day record in China, and was initially released in North America on roughly twice as many screens, it has thus far failed to match The Mermaid’s financial success. I have no idea why that is, anyone who claims to understand what makes the difference between a hit and a super-hit is a liar or a fool, but I can theorize that the film’s somewhat mixed critical response is a response to its weird hybrid nature. Not just in the ways Chow situates a sincere appreciation for religion within a goofy pop context, but in the film’s dual authorship between Chow, who co-wrote and produced, and Tsui Hark, who directed. »
